Mayall II LBV

  1. Dec 11, 2015 #1

    In the image, there is an odd Bluish-Green spec to the upper left of one of the lower bright background stars. I think it could be an LBV in the outskirts of the cluster. Any thoughts?

    No way to tell that from a single image. One needs to do more astrometry to determine star's parameters.

    It's possible that this particular star has been analysed already, thought.

    I'm not an astronomer, but in this day and age I wouldn't be surprised if star databases are available online.

    Okay. Thanks.
